I always liked her work; either those B sci fi films she did.

I thought she was awesome with Lee Van Cleef in Roger Corman's IT CONQUERED THE WORLD. Unfortunately, that's a film that is copyright and may never be available on DVD.

The recently deceased Peter Graves was the lead. Here is the trailer (brings back good memories):

Good times. I shall miss Mr. Graves. I always thought he got (and us) blessed when he joined the IMF as Jim Phelps.

Indeed! My friends call me an old fart, but I prefer those old 1950s and 60s b-movies over anything made in more recent years.

You aren't old- you just got taste. You don't watch movies just for SF but rather for story, plot, character -you know, the important stuff.

Thanks, and yeah...the usual "showy" trappings of sci-fi films (the sets, effects, makeup) mean little to me. You and I grew up in a time when special effects were pretty limited in all but a handful of big budget films, so the filmmakers with lower budgets had to find ways to tell their stories with minimal resources. Roger Corman was good at that most of the time.

That is so true. With the film I recently completed the only "special effect" is the ghost of the child who was drowned in this film. You see him on several ocassions in the film by the help of an image screen where the actor is placed into the scene by basically superimposed into the given scene.

Simple effects are the best, IMHO. I used to love doing stop-motion, double-exposure, and mirror work, 30-40 years ago. When I had my own "studio" facility, I built a lot of full-size sets and miniatures, too. Not anymore. I have to improvise a lot.

Several of my old films are gone, most are in a box in the closet. And I have some boxes of slides and photos. I made most of my films in the mid-1970s. Those were good days.

Well...sci-fi films are my favorites, but I like many other films as well. In fact, Ida Lupino is my favorite director.

She directed a number of "HGWT" shows. I wish we could get a few of those.

Oh yes, she did a lot of westerns on TV. Heck, she even directed for Gilligan's Island and Bewitched. I love her films The Hitch-Hiker and The Bigamist (both are on IA).

Ms. Lupino blazed the trail for women directors.
